Now then - someone has actually made a 1/32 scale working slot car (scaletrix to most of us) of the Mercedes transporter.   When will we have a Commer version?  Who can produce such an article?   Then the Brethren's Scaletrix challenge on Karting Nord could take on a new dimension.......

With a bit of work, you could probably modify this.

Airfix 1/32 scale kits are quite good for slot modifying - there must have been a Commer one made at some point - I'll go check ebay.

As for the venue, I have to say that I have the ultimate Scalextric track designed (but not built yet - got all the track but needs to be outdoors and no good weather yet). Just under 13 metres (tad over 40 feet) x 5.5 metres (18 feet). Will dig out the design.....

Excellent, I take it 40ft x 18ft is pretty much to scale.  You'll need a school hall or similar.

'Fraid not, scale would be about 500+ feet!!!! It's is fairly representative in terms of shape though. Once again, those long winter evenings have been just flying by! My wife wonders what I do in my "cupboard" all those evenings!

Nope, not a sausage. Not even Google can come up with anything. Time for you scratchbuilders to own up!! Your forum needs YOU!

Other than in 1:1 scale, my scratchbuilding/rebuilding/ converting in scale tends towards racing topics.....
